Onuachu's Header Denies Benin-Republic AFCON's Ticket

Paul Onuachu's late minutes header denied host, Squirrels of Benin Republic, the  qualification ticket for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon 

The three times, African Champions, Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated the homeside by a lone-goal in a Group L match played on Saturday in Porto-Novo, to finish top of the table with 11points  with a home match in Lagos on Tuesday, against bottom placed Lesotho, to spare

Eagles who already secured a place in the forthcoming  Afcon, before the crucial encounter, broke defensive displayed of the Beninoise who needed just a draw to pick the second qualification ticket in the group

The fate of the Benin-Republic with seven points, now hangs in a balance, as the side square up with Leone Stars of Sierra-Leone in the last qualifier on the road  in Free-Town on Tuesday

Host Sierra-Leone with four points needs a comprehensive win against the visiting Benin Republic who must avoid a defeat,to pick the second ticket in the group for the African biggest football show piece in Cameroon
